Liverpool fans have mixed feelings about their clubs’ transfer business so far this summer, and reports from The Telegraph have once again split opinion.
The publication reckons Brendan Rodgers is considering approaching his former club Swansea City for Welsh international left back Ben Davies, once Luis Suarez completes his expected £75 million switch to Barcelona.
Suarez’s Anfield exit is expected to be completed in the next 48 hours, with the deal having been held up as FIFA dealt with the strikers’ appeal against his four month ban for the biting incident that took place at the World Cup – which has today been rejected.
Rodgers has been busy strengthening his squad this summer, regardless as to whether Suarez departs.
The Reds boss is expected to complete the signing of Benfica winger Lazar Markovic shortly, whilst a deal for Lille’s Belgian international striker Divock Origi is also close.
Now Rodgers is ready to solve his problematic left back position, and has identified Swansea’s Ben Davies as the man to do so.
The 21-year-old is valued at around £10 million by Garry Monk’s Swans and Liverpool have indicated they are willing to pay that price after opening talks with the Welsh club on Wednesday.
Tottenham are also keen on the Welsh international, but Rodgers will hope his connections with his former club will see him win the race for his signature.
Liverpool fans. Is Ben Davies the answer to your left back problems? Wouldn’t you rather have seen the club fork out for Sevilla’s Alberto Moreno? Let us know your thoughts below.
